Orren Fox is Author, Beekeeper, Chicken Farmer and Blogger from Newburyport in Massachusetts. He has been running the successful blog happychickens.com for almost nine years. Beekeeping has taken him to Nepal and the White House, what is next step for this young man?

You can find by listening to the show here:-
Getting Young People Interested in Beekeeping

Here's What was discussed

  • How Orren Started Beekeeping in Sixth Grade
  • How Orren is helping in Nepal with the Blinknow Foundation
  • How it came down to a choice between a Ram or Bees?
  • Why Bee Suits with open side pockets are a bad idea?

Have you got any good idea on how to get kids interested in bees?

Gary and Margaret

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
